I wanted to connect with other moms out there who chose not to use any form of pain medications. I have had two children and both of my deliveries were without pain medication. I feel like I have accomplished something great especially given my young age. Every mom around my age I have talked to has told me they thought I was crazy for doing so because there is no way they could have. It's also my belief that because of my decision not to use pain medicines my labor and deliveries went faster. My first was only around 4 hours, and I only had to push 5-6 times. My second was cut down to 3 hours and amazingly I pushed only once.
